Alpha Vision Design has been appointed by PTI to distribute to UK and Ireland its award winning series of Automated Seal Inspection Technologies.

Dublin, Ireland, September 19th, 2005 - Alpha Vision Design, a leading manufacturer of innovative quality assurance and inspection systems for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries has been chosen by PTI to distribute its range of Seal Inspection technologies to UK and Ireland.

PTI have pioneered a brand new technique to perform non-destructive seal integrity inspection on both food and medical device pouches made from any material such as foil, film, paper, TYVEKTM, printed, colour or transparent. SealScan(TM) identifies the presence, type and location of seal defects, verifying the package integrity and analyzing the overall seal quality.

Tony Stauffer, President of PTI states 'In choosing Alpha Vision Design as our UK and Irish distributor, we have ensured our customers will receive the highest quality experience, service and support within the industry'

For the first time, Opto-Acoustic imaging can be applied to in-line analysis of seals on flexible packaging. These systems are replacing unreliable human inspection and ensure that all sealed packaging are 100% inspected, guaranteeing distribution of high quality sealed products while reducing the unit cost of production due to reduced scrappage and labour costs.

As an offline tool, SealScan(TM) is unmatched within the industry as the Opto-Acoustic images can be used to reliably calibrate and optimise seal inspection machines.

Niall Dorr, Business Development Manager of Alpha Vision Design says, 'For the first time, packagers can now quantify their sealing process, and as a result, this technology is gaining broad acceptance in the medical device and related industries for validating their packaging processes'

Alpha Vision Design will be showcasing SealScan(TM) at Medtec Ireland 2005 to be held September 28-29th, 2005, Galway, Ireland.

SealScan(TM) is available now.
